February is the month of respite, contraction and preparation; thank God and Pope Julian it’s the shortest month of the year. Over my entire life’s haul thus far the month of February, while giving the Hallmark corporation another chance at spiking the suicide rate or at least sales of pharmaceuticals around February 14th, things in this month have alway been a little grey and droopy; if it weren’t for February maybe Crime and Punishment would have been one third short or it ends with a giant bikini parade on a Russian party frigate and Roskolnikov becomes a bartender, inventing his own drink names based on conversations with the left breast of each of the female shipmates. Now that’s an ending that Hollywood could embrace and reject and embrace and reject and ultimately reject, which is success. or one that would get the novel on a subway ad in NYC.

Fortunately he caught the errors and I joked with him that Wesley Snipes wrote and approved the final coding for TurboTax. TurbaoTax, Kid tested, Snipes approved. Be wary.
If you dream your dog’s teeth are falling out does that mean great financial misfortune will befall your dog? Moose needs to diversify her portfolio.
